Women can't/don't serve in Combat positions??

Women are not allowed to occupy "combat MOS" such as infantry that are listed as a combat position. Women ALREADY are in combat postions. Let's give them the training they deserve to fully carry out their responsiblities!

Take a look here as Maj. Ladda "Tammy" Duckworth of the Illinois Army National Guard relates her combat experiences.

"Being in the military is an honor," said Maj. Ladda "Tammy" Duckworth of the Illinois Army National Guard, who lost her leg when an insurgent's rocket-propelled grenade slammed into her Black Hawk helicopter in Iraq. Doctors managed to save part of her right leg.......She received a standing ovation when she said she wouldn't hesitate to strap on her new, titanium legs and return to Iraq. "I, along with the rest of the soldiers at Walter Reed (Army Medical Center) would strap on our new limbs, pick up our weapons and go right back, if we could," she said.
